Backchat doesn't want to be seen as 'heightest' in any way, but must impart a piece of gossip picked up last week.

It seems Norwich Union's Ken Wallace and HHH's former managing director Ken Applegate not only share the same first name, but neither are the tallest.

But Applegate is in fact shorter than Wallace.

Our source on the sauce said: "The two would come into meetings together, and Ken Applegate would be running behind Wallace. To which he got the nickname 'wee Ken'."
